Hey!

Personal email address, school email address, work email address, other personal email address you made as a kid. It is hard enough to remember all of their passwords let alone remembering to check them all regularly. I have a solution for you!

1. Choose the email address that you find the easiest to access and then follow the steps below in the email address that you no longer want to have to check.

 


 

2. If your emails are gmail or gmail look alikes, click the cog in the top right hand corner and then click settings.

 


 

3. Next, choose ‘Forwarding and POP/IMAP’ from the tabs at the top. Your page should look like this.

4. Now, click ‘Add a forwarding address’. Enter the email address that you want your emails to forward to (the email address that you find the easiest to check). You will have another window pop up, click proceed and then OK.

 


 

5. You will now need to check the email address that you just typed in for an email with a code, enter this code into the spot highlighted in the picture below and click verify.

6. Nearly done, now click the little circle next to the email address you want gmail to send emails to and play with the drop down menu of what will happen to those emails. You can either choose for the emails to stay in the inbox, marked as read, archived or deleted. (I usually choose archived so that I know I have seen them).

 


 

7. Click ‘Save Changes’ and there you go! No need to check this email address ever again!!
